Security Alerts

At LGfL, we understand the critical need for robust cybersecurity solutions that safeguard your school community. That's why we've built a multi-layered defence system. LGfL’s Security Alerts are powered by the expertise of the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and the robust infrastructure of Jisc, the UK's leading provider of digital services for education.

How Do Security Alerts Work?

NCSC Early Warning System: Identifying Vulnerabilities Before They Strike

Imagine a vigilant sentry scanning your school's digital perimeter, pinpointing weaknesses before they're exploited. That's the power of the NCSC Early Warning System (EWS).

  • Every LGfL connection has a dedicated public IP address registered with the NCSC.

  • The NCSC regularly scans these connections for known vulnerabilities, such as outdated software or unpatched systems.

  • Upon detecting a vulnerability, the NCSC alerts LGfL, and we proactively contact your school directly.

  • We provide clear, actionable steps to remediate the issue and prevent potential attacks.

12 layers of cybersecurity protection

Jisc's Constant Vigilance: Real-Time Threat Detection and Neutralisation
